Actually on second look, seeing that overland equipped Cherokee behind it, and the other Defender? behind that, I suspect this might be a US border crossing with Mexico, not an import yard.

No, if I recall this is a snapshot of the video where chuckles walks around the truck pointing out that the door hinge bolts have been replaced and the rear door has a lift-style handle (which every full rear door has, FYI) so it must be a sketchy import.

Yeah, it's a photo from CBP's photobucket account or whatever it was from last year.

Absurd. Who ever said customs was protecting the country? It's about regulation of trade, import duties, etc. Always has been.

I believe they were the ones saying that they were keeping unsafe vehicles off the road.

They are, in fact, providing protection for the corporatists who bought and paid for said trade regulations.

Additionally, a D90 ST (black) was pulling in as I was walking out and is owned by a member here (I just do not recall his name - I believe it was a son with father).
Yes, that was me and my dad. Sorry we missed you; you were in the teal two door 110 wagon right?

Sunday, just off of Battery Park in Lower Manhattan. Clearly French, with a lot of stickers from Latin America so they overlanded up from there. [WTF - mods, why does the iOS app not work for uploading photos??]

The error you experience is not related to the site as I've just uploaded this via iOS app.

Actually proof that you dont need much poser tactical flair. It seems like the more flair, the less wear and tear! (Yeah I just made that up..)

The traveling foreign truck looks like a proper D110 should. Just enough flair everything with an obvious puprose. Opposite of the US mega-buck "restorer" frat.

Spotted this morning on I93 southbound just south of Boston. British racing green ST w/ fiberglass top. I was carpooling with a coworker so not in my truck, but I gave a wave anyway!
